Buzz Bissinger Does Not Like Tom Corbett’s NCAA Lawsuit

Beloved curmudgeon Buzz Bissinger goes on a rant about Gov. Tom Corbett’s lawsuit against the NCAA at the Daily Beast today, calling the action “a shamelessly naked attempt to pander to the Penn State brethren” angered by the NCAA’s penalties in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. “The suit is hogwash. By the time it is fully litigated, if it is ever litigated, there is a strong likelihood that the sanctions against Penn State will have ended. But this is not a suit pivoting on legal merits. This is a suit filed by Corbett to ingratiate himself with the Penn State community and alumni, a valuable source of votes and campaign contributions when he is up for reelection in 2014 and may well face a formidable challenger in the Republican primary.” Because this is Buzz, some profanity and anger is involved.
